Reiki and Healing

By default working through a level of emotional healing will tend to have a positive knock-on effect to well-being. If a person focuses only on superficial areas of imbalance to the neglect of much needed deeper emotional healing, then only a fraction of the potential benefits can be achieved, be that with Reiki or any approach. In this article we look at Reiki and its role in healing.

Improving Sleep with Reiki

So how can Reiki help to improve sleep? In this regard it may be helpful to consider the collective effect of all of the individual ways Reiki might help when considering its value. To start with Reiki promotes deep relaxation, commonly to a level beyond what would be experienced by traditional relaxation methods. This enhanced state of relaxation can still be experienced beyond the treatment appointment itself and is indeed commonly deepened over a course of Reiki treatments, resulting in a more underlying longer-term relaxation response

Using Reiki for Relaxation

The acute levels of relaxation experienced during the treatment itself tend to be of a deeper nature when compared to alternative relaxation techniques This is due to the nature/deeper effect of Reiki energy on a person which is to a much greater level than would be achievable via other relaxation methods. A benefit of Reiki is that the recipient just has to lie there and receive the treatment rather than learn a skill or practice a technique to receive deep benefits (which is great if your brain is fried after a long day at work!)

What is Jikiden Reiki?

In a nut shell Jikiden Reiki is authentic Japanese Usui Reiki, as practised and taught in the late 1920s and 30s in Japan, with no western influence or adaption to the original teachings of the time. Most people assume, and why wouldn't they, that everything under the banner of Reiki is the same thing. It is a correct statement that Reiki energy is Reiki energy, regardless of style and to a degree they have strong similarities: they all channel energy through the practitioner's hands to the recipient; they originate from Usui sensei's Reiki system of healing and personal growth; and they all help people. Yet there are marked differences in understandings, teachings, techniques and applications between differing Reiki styles. We explore in more detail what Jikiden Reiki is.
